Revealing Layers - Honoring the Journey

  "Each person is a book or medley of memories. 
Every story is as unique 
as its players and scenarios choreographed in time."


My art focuses on unraveling the complexity and mystery of human emotion, behavior, and relationships, featuring the individual within or outside of a group dynamic. Layers of color, shape, texture, and line palpitate with energy to convey a mood: intimacy, loneliness, alienation, joy, solidarity, sensuality, conflict, harmony, or mystery.  Depending on the story, I zoom in on an individual, defining their character in layers, or I depict them only as silhouettes or after-thoughts. Are they center stage or out of focus? Do they wear a mask…?  Each painting is wrenched from personal experience, influenced by dreams, and infused with thought and emotion.
